Remove Your Skin Tags with Excellent Cosmetic Results

Our skin tag removal is a simple, safe procedure by a qualified doctor using thermocoagulation. Skin tags are common as people age, can cause discomfort and self-esteem issues. The doctor will assess and use local anaesthetic during the in-clinic procedure.

What it includes

  • Assessment - A qualified doctor will assess the skin tag for the most appropriate treatment.
  • Thermocoagulation - The procedure involves using thermocoagulation, where a small electrical current is applied to the skin tag to remove it.
  • In-Clinic Procedure - The doctor carries out the removal in the clinic.
  • Local Anaesthetic - Local anaesthetic is used to minimise pain and discomfort during the procedure.

Why have your skin tags removed by Wells

  1. Pain and Discomfort Relief - Removing skin tags can eliminate any pain or discomfort they may cause, especially when snagged on clothing or jewellery.
  2. Improved Self-Esteem - Skin tags can affect self-esteem, especially when visible in prominent areas. Their removal can enhance confidence.
  3. Prevention of Irritation - Skin tags can be irritated by friction, leading to redness or inflammation. Removal helps prevent further irritation.
  4. Reduced Risk of Bleeding - Skin tags may bleed if accidentally torn. Removal decreases the risk of bleeding.
  5. Lower Risk of Infection - An open or irritated skin tag may be prone to infection. Removal reduces this risk.
  6. Enhanced Hygiene - Removing skin tags improves personal hygiene, as they may be challenging to clean around.
  7. Cosmetic Benefits - Skin tag removal can improve the appearance of the skin in affected areas.

Are there any side effects or risks associated with skin tag removal? 

Some minor bleeding or bruising may occur, but they usually resolve quickly. In rare cases, infection or scarring may occur.

Are skin tags contagious? 

No, skin tags are not contagious. They are benign growths and cannot be transmitted from person to person.

How long does the removal procedure take? 

The skin tag removal procedure is generally quick and can often be completed in a matter of minutes, depending on the number and size of tags being removed.

Is there any scarring after skin tag removal? 

When removed by a qualified professional, scarring is typically minimal or non-existent.

Can skin tags grow back after removal? 

While it's possible for skin tags to grow back in the same area after removal, it's not a common occurrence.

Are there any specific aftercare instructions after skin tag removal? 

After the procedure, the doctor may provide instructions on keeping the treated area clean and protected while it heals.

Can skin tags be a sign of a more serious condition? 

Skin tags are generally harmless and not indicative of a serious medical condition. However, it's always best to have any new or changing skin growths evaluated by a healthcare professional.

How can I prevent new skin tags from forming? 

While it's challenging to prevent all skin tags, maintaining good skin hygiene and avoiding excessive friction or irritation in skin-fold areas can help reduce the risk of new tags developing.
